How the Passport program works

Visit libraries in the Northern Waters Library Network (NWLN) and you could win fabulous prizes! Here’s how it works:

  • Pick up a passport at a participating library or print one out. Print double-sided and fold into a booklet.
  • Visit an NWLN library. Ask the library staff to stamp and date your passport.
  • You may also include up to four library visits outside of NWLN in your passport. Just fill out their information in the blank spaces on the final page of the passport.  Draw in your own stamp design if you wish.
  • Once you’ve visited ten libraries, ask an NWLN library for a prize entry slip. The library staff will mark off ten of your visits in your passport and give you an entry form.  
  • Fill out the prize entry form and return it to the library staff to enter the prize drawing. 
  • Continue visiting libraries for more chances to win! You can receive one entry for each 10 libraries you visit and mark in your passport.
  • The program begins on Monday, April 24, 2023. All prize entries must be received by August 31, 2023.
